Lots of laughs, great conversations, and praises of the Joy of Gaming followed as hearts were light, and deaths frequent and often comical. At one point, Zoso jovially and insightfully said that it was hard to take the game seriously. A little later, when one of the matches seemed like it might never end (I think we set it for too many points), one of the teams went all spies, and then all medics. It was a hoot and on that note we switched to L4D, determined to make the match reasonable. It worked. Blank, Infidel, Johann, and Timothy beat us (rED, Grymm, Zoso, and I) by a relatively narrow lead of about 400 points. 11xx - 7xx. Great game with some incredible team efforts. One of the most devastating slap downs was coming out of the safe room in the sewers. 3 feet out the door. That is about all we got. Totally overwhelmed. I can imagine how Blankman would have been hollering and trash-talking us.
From there, we eventually settled on some Gears 2 Private Warzone with tyrus, Rage, and Legend joining us. I hosted. LOL. I have to say, when you host, you don't worry about the fact that your shotgun takes so long to reload, because you never need to reload. One shot basically takes care of things. LOL My apologies to Legend. While I had zero lag, she had double. :(
Lots of fun!
A couple of random notes:
*Grymm is a beast at TF2 (110+ points in one of the matches!).
*rED is no slacker either as, on one occasion, he single-handedly sapped 5+ buildings in a stealth blitzkrieg that left the enemy base completely vulnerable to capture.
*Infidel's skill, especially in L4D, ....jeopardizes friendships. ;)
*In protest (of last weeks announcement), Blank switched his gamerpic from Louis to something not Valve.
*In protest, my Avatar is still Mr. Molyneux.
*I had a 20 point damage pounce on Infidel. BABY!!!!
*Zoso witnessed that pounce. Baby x2.
*Johann "learned" how to play the spy.
*Nate kicks ass all over the place as pyro
*L4D is all that. I am weak. I will buy.
*Zos enjoyed Gears 2. He did. He also had some incredible grenade throws.
*Host doesn't help aiming ability.
*I am full of love.
*Infidel's new headset...we are all grateful for it.
*I typed this whole diary buck naked.
*By the time You are reading this, I probably will have put on underwear.
*papi was missed, but knowing him, he was probably doing something even more fun than gaming. hee hee hee ;)
Have a great Saturday, Gearheads! You made mine totally awesome.
